Good question.  I have recoded every non-scriptural reference by hand
since the file in your possession.  I did so based mostly on feedback
from Chris Little for how complex references should be encoded.

the "\ " that you see is actually a backslash followed by a non-breaking
space (you need a character map to grab that little dandy of a
character).  This allows it to be considered one reference item, not two.

Would you like me to email the new file?
